Crawl Space Problem Signs in Mobile

Since trips to your crawl space could be dangerous, it’s best to avoid them altogether by calling the experts at AFS. Although mold and standing water are easiest to observe inside the crawl space, plenty of crawl space problem signs can be observed in the living areas of your home. Musty odors, high humidity, weak or sagging floor, condensation, or high energy bills are all symptoms that can be detected without ever having to venture into the space below your floors.

What are the Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Mobile?

Unfortunately, the weather and soil in Mobile are the worst combination for crawl space problems. Although construction error may be the problem, in our more than 20 years of experience, we have found environmental issues far exceed construction problems. The stack effect draws Mobile’s hot, humid air into the crawl space through the open vents. There it travels throughout the home, bringing mold spores, pest droppings, and musty odors. This air eventually escapes through the roof. Even in the best-insulated homes, up to 50 percent of the air you breathe comes from your crawl space. The large amount of rain in Mobile, more than 65 inches annually, is also to blame. Rainwater often enters the crawl space through the vents, doors, or the crawl floor, resulting in standing water. Stagnant water can cause mold to grow within 24 to 48 hours, so it’s best to address the problem quickly. 

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Mobile

The best way to repair your Mobile crawl space is to seal it from the outside elements and include the space in your living area. By locking out humid air, moisture, and pests, you are able to use your crawl space for storage. This process, commonly referred to as encapsulation, may involve a waterproofing system– including a sump pump, vapor barrier, and energy-efficient dehumidifier. At AFS, your encapsulation system is customized to the needs of your home and specific problems. An expert team member will suggest a repair option that works for your home.
